The Rockaway, originating around 1830 on Long Island, New York, was peculiarly American with its design meant to keep the coachman under cover.

Originally there were roof supports at the very front of the body. Eventually they were moved to the back of the driver’s seat, yielding the open front of this example. This profile remained in use and was incorporated into early limousine auto bodies.
